Women’s Bundesliga before “professionalization”

According to the DFB, a possible spin-off of the women’s Bundesliga from the German Football Association is no longer an issue. Instead, the clubs sought “sustainable professionalization for their leagues” under the umbrella of the association with an amendment. The DFB announced this on Friday.

The Football Association of the Rhineland (FVR) submitted an application to the DFB Bundestag on March 11, which included the independence of the women’s Bundesliga. Since then, “constructive talks have been held between the Women’s Bundesliga Committee, the clubs in the two leagues, FV Rheinland and the DFB”. The committee is now preparing “a corresponding amendment”.

“With its application (….) on the initiative of Theo Zwanziger, the Rhineland Football Association has thrown a stone into the water to call for the professionalization of the women’s Bundesliga,” said Committee Chairman Siegfried Dietrich. The aim of the application is “to achieve a significant strengthening of the two women’s Bundesliga under the umbrella of the DFB with sustainable measures”.

According to Dietrich, for those responsible for the clubs, “the question of outsourcing is not currently posed, but for us it is primarily about general professionalisation. The perception and visibility of our leagues, the development of structures, sustainable investments by our licensor – for example ( …) in more economic stability also through better TV presence and marketing – in focus.” The amendment should be submitted as a steering request by the committee to the DFB Bundestag and thus replace part of the FVR request.

The topic of spin-offs had picked up speed recently. Among other things, Bayern Munich President Herbert Hainer said in Vereinsmagazin 51: “A model analogous to the men whose professional clubs are organized through the DFL is certainly worth serious consideration.”

The DFB continues to reject this idea. “We understand and share the interests of the applicants from FV Rheinland to further develop and professionalize the women’s federal leagues at all levels and to increase their visibility,” said Holger Blask, spokesman for the DFB management, as quoted on Friday: “In our opinion, one Outsourcing is not the right way to achieve these goals.
